The Lost Vikings by is an action/adventure/puzzler that really gets your brain matter going (developed by Silicon & Synapse -- who would later become Blizzard Entertainment).
In this game, you try to help three, lost Vikings (Olaf, Eric, and Baleog) return to their quiet Nordic life.
Each brother has unique abilities that will prove vital as you navigate the 30+ levels/puzzles in order to help them find a way back to their people.
If you're looking for action, then move along -- otherwise, be prepared for one of the funniest, mind bending, classic games.
It was originally released on the Super Nintendo in 1992, then subsequently released for the Amiga, Amiga CD32, MS-DOS, and Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis systems the following year.
